Perfect location. 5 blocks walking to the Silos. Close to restaurants. Super clean and great front desk help! Even got us a Scrabble game to play at night. Definitely went out of their way to make our stay nice. Highly recommend if you're visiting Waco.

My husband and I were in Waco to attend the WV/Baylor baseball series. We found the hotel not only close to the campus but also close to other attractions downtown with a trolley stop near by. Easy access off I35. We are Marriott owners and always appreciate the high quality.

Clean hotel and spacious room with friendly staff. Breakfast was good and efficient with staff exceeding expectations again. Room was nice (could always use more pillows) but a little road noise, of course the train didn't have to keep blowing the whistle at 4am, but what are you going to do?

I frequent this hotel when traveling for business. I've always had a great experience when visiting. The staff is friendly and accommodating, breakfast is amazing and the evening social hour is a nice touch. It is very convenient to Magnolia, restaurants and the interstate. Due to my frequent travel, I decided to have some fun on my most recent visit....

We had a great experience staying at the Residence Inn in Waco while visiting my daughter at school. The hotel was very friendly and very accommodating for the five nights we were in Waco. The staff was friendly and always greeted us with a smile. This hotel is covenant to the University as well as the downtown area.

My wife is a big fan of Chip & Joanna Gaines from HGTV's Fixer Upper program. We spent the night in Waco and visited Magnolia in the morning. The hotel is within walking distance, or there is a free trolley that stops at the corner of the hotel every 15 minutes. The rooms are big and well appointed. Great free...

Located in great location close to many attractions in walking distance. Employees were very nice at checkin and during our stay. Room was very large and well appointed for this type of hotel. They offered complimentary foods items at different times.
